That means we’ve got you covered when it comes to room blocks, breakout sessions, and function spaces…and plenty of scenic views in your downtime. Below we skim the surface of the types of meetings and conferences commonly brought to Maine.

Conference / Convention
If you’re planning a conference or convention, you’re probably expecting 100-500+ people. Conferences focus on problem-solving amongst colleagues while a convention brings people together through a shared interest. Whatever topic your Conference / Convention revolves around, there are moving parts from getting gift bags to planning group meals and attractions. We are here to help.

With plenty of connections to local churches and community organizations, we can be your liaison on the ground in greater Portland. We can help recommend outdoor wellness activities like yoga or a workout to get the blood flowing outside of breakout sessions.
Have you considered a Citywide? If you’re planning a large-scale meeting, think about utilizing the local venues across Downtown Portland from bars and breweries to event spaces and hotels. Spread your group out across cobblestone streets and the working waterfront. This type of meeting is coined a citywide when a convention or meeting “takes over” the town it’s being hosted in. Hence the nickname, a small town takeover where your attendees can make the city their playground.
Small Market Meeting
There are some big benefits to booking small. Portland and its surrounding areas are fit for events of any size (see below), but being a small destination means all the amenities of a larger-scale metro area with the charm and easy navigation of a tighter-knit community.
Let us assist in finding local fields across the region as well as any room blocks you may need for your staff and team members. We can find local venues and vendors to make your event special in addition to connecting you with our Maine Sports Commission for additional resources.
